Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

I love that these cookies are so easy to make.
The cookie dough does require 4 hours refrigeration, so factor that in to your prep time.
Once they’re out of the fridge, just roll them in balls dip them in sugar and bake.  Easy Peasy.
This recipe will also make at least 72 cookies.  Which is a GOOD thing!

Shepherd’s Pie– With Cauliflower Mash

I found this recipe and just tweaked it a little so that it would make enough to feed a very hungry family.

I also cheated a bit from the original recipe.

I’ll admit it… I used frozen mashed cauliflower.  The truth is… you probably will too.

This is low carb, but I did add one carrot as I think this recipe needs the carrot  not only for flavor but color.

Gingerbread Biscotti

I looked through over a dozen Gingerbread Biscotti Recipes and this looked to be the best.  And it was !
I’m not much of a dunker, but I’ve heard they’re excellent for dunking.

Cauli-Rice Pudding

Nothing thrilled me more than finding a low carb version of rice pudding.
There are a lot of versions of cauli-rice pudding out there, but quite honestly, I stumbled on the perfect one the first time out.

Coconut Flour Pumpkin Muffins

These muffins are a great alternative to oily, high sugar muffins.
They are perfect for a low carb diet.
As with anything baked with coconut flour they tend to be on the dryer side, but I don’t mind it.
A little pat of butter makes these muffins even better right out of the oven.

Nutella Twist

This gorgeous dessert can’t get any easier.
I can’t even call it a recipe because it’s literally two ingredients.
This is terrific to make in  pinch when you have company coming.
All you need is to have a sheet of puff pastry in your freezer and …. well everyone has Nutella in their cupboard right ?
